Vegetarian dishes 

"We expect to see more people choosing vegetarian dishes as we observe clean eating and wholefood trends which continue to grow. We can thank Yotam Ottolenghi in part for this—Australians are loving his vegetable-based main-course recipes!"

Healthier ingredient options
"We will see consumers looking for healthy additions to their daily rituals, such as adding matcha or turmeric to their smoothies and juices, coconut oil and panela to their coffee, and choosing dark chocolate over milk."

"Dude Food"

"This trend is still running strong in Australia as we see fried chicken shacks opening up, burgers getting bigger and better, and all varieties of chilli sauces taking pride of place alongside salt and pepper on the tables. This will have a great influence on our restaurant menus and retail lines in store."
